Brian Molefe's resignation was premature

Brian Molefe's resignation was premature

NUM Press Statement,  12 November 2016

The National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) has noted with serious concern the untimely resignation of the Eskom Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Brian Molefe yesterday. There is no doubt that Eskom was beginning to stabilise its power supply  under his leadership. 

The NUM believes it was premature for him to resign as we expected him to assist the  Commission of Inquiry in a number of allegations that have been levelled personally against him and Eskom as an entity in the State Capture Report.  Brian Molefe should have waited for the Commission of Inquiry to complete its work.

In her report, the former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela made several determinations including that President Jacob Zuma appoint within 30 days a Commission of Inquiry headed by a judge solely selected by the Chief Justice.

The NUM is highly disappointed that again Eskom is in leadership crisis within such a very short space of time.

We will await full disclosure regarding reasons for his resignation and will thereafter comment further.
